Siege and storm
By Leigh Bardugo
The Grisha Trilogy

Book 1

“Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh.”
Alina was taken and trained as a member of the Grisha who are a magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. Lives were lost and the consequences are high.

Book 2
“The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.”

I really do love these trailers. They are very well produced and the sound track is just perfect.
Unfortunately the book isn’t out until June but, hey, that isn’t really too long to wait.

The first book trailer for this great YA trilogy can also be found on this blog.

This is not out until June and no matter whether it is the Uk or US edition I do hope the libraries here pick up this title as it sounds so good.
I love the soundtrack in this very intriguing trailer.
